I am i the market for a new lathe. Looking for a lathe with 16”-20” over bed. My skill level is moderate to high (bowls, custom reproduction work) Space & budget is limited. Any suggestions?

We just answered same question in this thread.

Think will find links to Laguna & Rikon lathes. Just have to search Grizzly, Jet, and Powermatic lathes. All lathes talked about have EVS vice Reeves drive to change speeds.

If space extremely limited would look at Nova lathes neither move the belts over the pulleys to change speeds nor DVR best bang for the money. Still Nova very popular on all woodturning message boards and have a loyal following.
